Named the top bar in the Tampa Bay area in 2009 by free weekly tbt*, Hyde Park Cafe is a see and be seen kind of place. You haven't truly partied in Tampa if you haven't woken up hung over after a Tuesday night at the Cafe. Tuesdays are for the real partiers who aren't afraid to stay out late on a school night. The indoor/outdoor layout gives clubgoers the feel of several bars in one. Groove to house music in the dance room or sit amid banana trees on the patio. Every night has a different theme. It's where former American Idol contestant Jessica Sierra threw a glass at a customer, landing her in the clink. For those who get hungry after all of that revelry, the Cafe offers late-night noshing featuring Parranelli's stone-seared pizza.
